Sonia Rykiel - Paris Spring 2010
(PARIS) As Sasha led the top models at Sonia Rykiel down the runway in a rousing dance party to "Don't Stop Till You Get Enough," it was more clear than ever that these designers knows how to have a good time--and look pretty great while doing so. The usual elements were in place--stripey knits, high-waisted trousers, chiffon day dresses, even a PVC raincoat--but in the midst of all this recessionary restraint, Rykiel feels more fresh than ever. The crowd was exhilarated, including the fans with their noses pressed to the glass of Rykiel's boutique on Avenue Saint-Germain. This designer has joie de vivre, and this season, she has our gratitude.
